The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town 1

Squaremeal Review of The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town ?

Here's a clue for newbies hoping for an audience with the Mayor: like Narnia for grown-ups, the portal to his magical hidden kingdom is disguised as a common household object – in this case a fridge at The Breakfast Club on Bishopsgate. Don't be a scaredy cat! Step inside and head downstairs to discover a chilled bunker that comes on like a Montana lumberjack's shack with moonshine aplenty on tap. Butch beers, punchy rum puncheons, lip-pucker sours, fiddled-with fizz, Pisco disco drinks and pimped-up Martinis are much cleverer than their tosh titles might suggest: A Mary Berry Kinda Gateau; Aloe, Is It Me You're Looking For; Peat-Nut Butter-Cup (bourbon, Mozart dark chocolate, peanut butter and Laphroaig spray). In the same spirit of silliness, we rate the Mayor's quesadilla platters, pulled pork sliders and vodka-battered calamari – surely the cat's whiskers.

As I write this the morning after a few “quiet drinks” in The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town, head a-throbbing, I understand why the food upstairs is of the type I would call “stomach lining”. You would be very wise to eat there before descending into the cavernous basement of this beautifully bonkers little bar as, once in, there is no natural light and there are no clocks; the Bermuda Time Triangle could easily gobble up your night. Despite being barely past 6 on a week night, the place is already busy...

Having wandered around and round in circles in search of this hidden bar, we finally tracked it down and were told that there was a 20-30minute wait before we could enter. Once we were finally escorted into the bar I couldn't really understand why we had to wait as it was practically dead! A little peeved by this, I ordered a drink and instantly relaxed into the surroundings. The dimly lit bar, delicious cocktails and friendly service made me forget about the unnecessary wait instantly! This...

    Emma Rose Tully :: The Mayor of Scaredy Cat Town Daydreamer

    Back tracking a couple of weeks now (I’ve been busy!) on Wednesday evening I paid my first visit to the Mayor’s house. The Mayor of a very small town called Scaredy Cat….. well, I say town. It’s actually a secret speakeasy beneath The Breakfast Club restaurant in Spitalfields. Lost? Let me explain….

    The Breakfast Club is a chain of restaurants in London serving yummy American grub. Think pancakes, burgers, club sandwiches, salt beef, etc...
